oldie but a goldie Tenna dipper

 

Just finished my tenna dipper kit from long ago. Its a souped up version with a multi turn 10k, I want to fit in a freq counter but I don't think I can fit any more into it!

Also used a micro rotary for the band switching.

Just thought I would share.

Also got lucky and picked up the HF test kit that was on universal radios used gear list about 2 weeks ago and will be mounting in this case soon...I hope.

I think there is plenty of room in there for a QRPGuys.com Thru-Hole Freq Counter - well, at least enough room, anyway. I felt guilty wasting all the extra space by putting mine in a mint tin.

G’day
I am building a Bayou Jumper kit which has the white panel, and was shipped before 16 April 2017.
 
Although it does not show on the building instruction manual, I just wanted to check, that I do not have to solder up any of the VIAS on this kits PCB board.
 
If I do, would you tell me which ones, please.

Hi John,

The original (white panel) BJ didn't call for filling any of the vias with solder. In fact, it's not strictly necessary even on the later versions. Just provides a little more conductivity along some critical traces.

On your whited-panel version, if you wish, these vias could profit from being solder filled:
- the vias at the inside of each of the three etched inductors
- the via just to the right of D1
- the via just below C22

December and 2018 SSS results

John Lonigro
 

Well, the Second Sunday Sprint is finished for 2018.  There were 12 entries this month, which is pretty typical.  We can always use more participants though.  The winner for December was Bill, KV6Z, with 21 QSO points. Congratulations, Bill.  You will receive your certificate shortly.  John, K4BAI, came in 2nd with 20 QSO points. And Carl, WB0CFF, was third with 18 points.

We had one new participant this month, Dave, WD8KRV, who was able to make one member QSO from his QTH of Tucson, AZ.  Welcome, Dave.  I'm sure making member contacts from Arizona is no easy task. Congratulations and we hope you will be a regular in next year's SSS.

For the year, Carl, WB0CFF, finished with 230 QSO points and is the winner for 2018.  If Carl had gone on another fishing trip last weekend, he still would have won, but by a much smaller margin. Bill, KV6Z, came in second for the year, with 203 points.  And Chas, W2SH, came in third, with 187 points.  Congratulations to Carl, Bill, and Chas for a fine showing for 2018.  Your certificates will also show up shortly.

For the year, there were 36 people who entered the Second Sunday Sprint and succeeded in making at least 1 QSO.  Maybe more of us (myself included) need to make a New Year's resolution to participate in the 2019 Second Sunday Sprint.

Again, congratulations to Bill for winning the December contest and to Carl, Bill, and Chas for their fine showing in 2018.

72 until 2019,

John, AA0VE

Yes, 80m was alive and well.

WA9PWP was 559 here in NJ. All the other sigs were 569 or better, except ADØYM who was 449.

Nice to hear the QNI from Carl, WBØCFF.  He is a vigorous participant in every month's 4SQRP Second Sunday Sprints.
